As a sourcing manager with SBP, Kerry is involved in many different projects for various internal customers in facilities, human resources, IT, and finance in support of our scientific labs and the Institute as a whole. A portion of her time is spent assisting these customers by sourcing third-party services via requests for proposals as well as negotiating and managing contracts for these services upon award. Since joining the Institute last November, she has partnered with the facilities team to remodel our employee café as well as bid out our existing landscaping services. Kerry has also been working with the finance department on developing a travel and expense program that will be available to all employees for professional as well as personal travel. Currently, she is on the finance committee overseeing the implementation of the Concur Travel & Expense software tool which will support our new program. Once complete, she will be managing the travel portion. Collaborating with the various teams in finance to come up with strategic solutions for short and long-term efforts has proved to be Kerry’s favorite parts of her role at SBP.
